Arnold Palmer

Happy 86th Birthday, Arnold Daniel Palmer, aka “the King” and “Arnie”! Palmer was born in Latrobe, Pennsylvania and is a retired American professional golfer who won 92 tournaments on the PGA Tour and the Champions Tour during his career! He earned a golf scholarship to Wake Forest University in North Carolina, where he won three golf conference championships. He is such an inspiring man and has been quoted for many positive things he has said:

  • “You must play boldly to win.”

  • “Golf is deceptively simple and endlessly complicated.”

  • “I've always made a total effort, even when the odds seemed entirely against me. I never quit trying; I never felt that I didn't have a chance to win.”

  • “Concentration comes out of a combination of confidence and hunger.”

  • “What other people may find in poetry or art museums, I find in the flight of a good drive.”

  • “I have a tip that can take five strokes off anyone's golf game: it's called an eraser.”

  • “Success in golf depends less on strength of body than upon strength of mind and character.”
